The Gorgonzola crusted filet is amazing!! This is a great date night venue. Charming and upscale in the heart of Buford. Several friends recommended to us last year and since our first time visit there it has been our favorite! There is also a speak easy in the basement with live band on weekends for the more mature crowd.

My wife and I went to Adam's last night. We had concerns from the reviews and called in advance to express them but nevertheless the experience was less that what we had hoped for. First the people are very nice and the bartender that waited on our table was very good...but that's just it...why do you have a bartender waiting... More

Went here for the first time on this past Saturday. We had a party of 10. It's nice they can accommodate that group size. I liked you could make your reservation online @ Open Table and they had the table all ready and waiting for us. Our waiter was not very good at all. This is a big impression when... More

This was our second time trying this restaurant; we thought we would give it another try. But again just average at best. The positive attribute is the piano bar / music during dinner. The crowd certainly gives the place a bit of energy. However, the service was very slow. Our waitress did her best; very polite; but far too much... More

They lost our reservations and proceeded to blame it us that we should have received a confirmation #. When I booked our reservation, over 2 weeks prior, they said we did not need a confirmation #. When they said could not find our reservation the Owner/Manager finally said we could sit down but needed to be done and out the... More

Great service and atmosphere. Wonderful menu. We have been here several times and even had my son's rehearsal dinner here. Fantastic service and attention to details.

5 tables seated on a sat at 7 should have told me enough. Oysters Rockerfeller (5 for $13), tasteless cheesey blobs, not a briny hint, filled with either grit, or bits of shells. Promptrly removed from table and bill. Rosemary chicken, a pounded flat mini breast, served with cold mashed potatoes, and soggy veggies. Wife's steak was average, ceaser salad... More

Our problem was with a very inexperienced server. Although we are not wine connoisseurs, we are in our 50's and have ordered many bottles of wine in our dining experiences. We asked for the "house Cabernet". First, the server was unable to open the bottle and had to ask the manager to assist. Then, when we received our bill, we... More

So much potential but very disappointing. Started with escargot which was so pretty but remarkably tasteless and chewy. My husband had fried green tomatoes that was laden with overpowering marinara sauce and goat cheese. My husband's lamb was tender and cooked perfectly but the sauce (even after scraped off) was overpowering. My NY strip was just ok. The only part... More
